  105. What a fun giveaway!

    My favourite tradition is that we always open stockings on Christmas Eve. When I was a kid we spent Christmas eve with my dad's side of the family and Christmas day with my mom's side of the family, but my sister and I managed to talk our parents into letting us open "just one thing" before we went to either of the family get-togethers and then since we did it last year, we have to do it this year too! Now we're all kind of spread out and don't do the family Christmas gatherings any more, but my parents come out here where my sister and I live and we've still kept up that tradition of One Thing (it's just One Stocking, which is a lot of little things) for the day ahead :) (Sorry, kind of a long one, eh?)
